Anyone using the Murrine GTK2 Cairo Engine? It's been updated to 0.11.1 but the Fedora RPM is still at 0.10. I haven't got the smarts to make an RPM. Anyway, because of DNS problems I can't download from the author's website and my ISP aren't ina hurry to fix it. Any volunteers? :D

Summary : Murrine has this object to provide the ability to make your desktop look like a "Murrina", which is the Italian singular of the name "Murrine".
Description :
"Murrine" is an Italian word meaning the art glass works done by Venicians glass blowers. They're absolutely wonderful and colorful. Murrine
has this object to provide the ability to make your desktop look like a "Murrina", which is the Italian singular of the name "Murrine".
The Engine is cairo-based, and it's very fast compared to clearlooks-cairo and ubuntulooks, since I have tryed to optimize the code and removed
a lot of slow gradients to provide this unique style.

I don't believe it! No sooner does Michael send me the update but the author updates it yet again! Looks like he also has something else in store!

I wish my ISP would fix the DNS issues, I sent them mail but they sent me back a long form to fill out. Funny though, rpm.livna.org started working a few days after I sent that mail to them.

Thanks, but using a friend's PC using a different provider I got the file but I'll bookmark this for the next time. I usually carry a USB memory stick with me :D

Michael, may I ask if you're still doing the Fedora RPMs?

Cheers

The engine has now been upgraded to 0.40.1 with several new tweaks and bug fixes but no Fedora RPM as yet on the download page :(

Wouldn't it be easier for some clever soul to make an RPM for idiots like me to use and put it up for download somewhere (like the 0.31 version was) rather than wait a year for the Extras maintainers to decide to include it in a future release of Fedora? :D Looking at that it looks like they'll include all the Murrina themes in the RPM, something which I definitely do no want. Just the engine, ma-am!

Hows that

Great, except that's the old 0.31 version which I've been using for ages :D As I said, it's been updated to 0.40.1, has new features and bugfixes, including fixing a memory leak.

It seems the only way to get these goodies in a timely fashion is to change to the distro that most of these authors are using. The downside is I dislike brown :(

You don't like compiling from source? I take things into my own hands when things are slow to get with the program. :p

Umm, if I didn't have a sheet of paper cello-taped to the side of my machine telling me how to switch on my PC I would have to ask one of my kids to do it for me and that would be embarrassing :D

sorry to get your hopes up

http://www.linux-ati-drivers.homecall.co.uk/gtk2-engines-murrine-0.40.1-2.i386.rpm

This started life as a deb file

Thanks for the link. I've been looking high and low for an RPM but only found ones for SUSE, which I extracted from the RPM and placed manually in the correct path but they failed to work.

With this RPM it looks like you must remove the 0.31 version first otherwise it won't install.

The Murrine engine is now in Fedora Extras:

yum install gtk-murrine-engine

Then grab the Murrine configurator from CIMI's homepage and install from a Terminal:

http://cimi.netsons.org/

Grab themes for it from:

http://gnome-look.org/

Use the configurator to use the themes then you can tweak them as you like them.
